A Word From Chris Freytag

I have been a fitness addict pretty much my whole life. At a young age, I discovered that movement made me feel good and it’s been my mission for the last 20+ years to help others experience what it means to be strong, both physically and mentally.For most of my life, I've also studied food, cooking healthy and eating healthy.

I’m mildly obsessed with sharing all I know with you. I want to help you figure out how exercise, strength training, and eating healthy can be a part of your everyday life.

I’m a realist. I believe you can transform your body and mind … and look incredible at any age. But I’ll never blow smoke and promise you “six pack abs in 10 days." To make up for the lack of BS, I provide top-notch, practical advice and motivation that works. Remember there is no such thing as a perfect body. I want to help you strive for progress, not perfection!

I can't wait to help you become your strongest self! "Yes, you can" is what I always say!
